    This Sunday, April 1, Pima Animal Care Center invites families for some Easter fun alongside PACC’s furry friends who will be participating in an Easter egg hunt from 10 a.m. to noon at the shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road. 

    Easter funPACC staff and volunteers will hide plastic eggs stuffed with treats throughout the PACC property. Dogs and puppies, accompanied by PACC volunteers, will get to search for the eggs and open them up to eat the treats. Small dogs will hunt for eggs at 10 a.m. and medium and large dogs will go out at 11 a.m. 

    “The Easter holiday can be a sad time at the shelter because we have hundreds of lost and unowned pets, without families of their own,” says PACC Director Kristen Auerbach. “We’re hoping to make Easter a happy day for our pets and to help showcase them to potential adopters.” 

    Community members who attend will also get to pass out Easter treats to cats and dogs and visit with adoptable pets. 

    To get as many pets home as possible over the holiday weekend, PACC will waive adoption fees for dogs and cats over six months Saturday and Sunday. PACC will be open for adoptions from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.

    “Even if you’re not in the market for a new family pet, this weekend is a perfect time to come and see the new facility and cuddle with shelter pets,” Auerbach said. “We’re counting on the community to help show each and every one of our animals that someone cares about them.”
